For Global Action Week, the national education coalition in Somalia (EFASOM), has worked with one of its members, the Disability and Development Center (DDC) to tour schools and encourage students to engage in advocacy for the rights of children with disabilities. A great result: all schools that were visited by EFASOM and DDC pledged to provide free primary education for at least 10 disabled children per school over the next five years.
